Hi! This is a minor issue but everyone here seems so helpful so I thought I would ask.
I've been experiencing reoccurring oral thrush for the past year. It all started when I want on Humira and I'm also on a steroid inhaler, which I don't think helps the problem. I have a regular RX for Nystatin mouthwash that I keep coming and going off of and when it gets really bad I go on Diflucan anti-fungal pill.
The thrush will go away for maybe a month or so, but it always comes back. Is there anything else that will help? Has anyone else experienced this? I asked my GI about probiotics and he didn't think that they would help -- he explained that the problem was in my mouth and probiotics are released in the gut. I'm not sure I 100% believe that explanation. I'm willing to try a good probiotic at this stage. Do others think that will help? I'm also open to other ideas.
Thanks in advance for any input!
